Getty ImagesFor the 3rd straight game in the series, the Sox and Mariners had trouble scoring runs until the later frames. Both pitching staffs were backed by outstanding defense tonight, highlighted by Cody Ross’ leaping catch against the wall in the 3rd inning to rob Ichiro of extra bases. Beckett didn’t allow his first hit until the bottom of the 5thinning, but it was the 6th inning where he ran into trouble. Ichiro singled and stole second with one out, and Beckett allowed his 2ndwalk of the night to Casper Wells. Kyle Seager then singled to left, loading the bases for John Jaso, who delivered a double that hit off the base of the wall in right, plating 2 runs. Beckett deserves credit for settling down and getting the last two out of the inning, keeping the Sox in the game. The Sox retaliated in the 7th with some seeing eye singles from Gonzalez, Middlebrooks, and Cody Ross. Kalish then grounded into a fielder’s choice that scored Gonzalez and the tying run came across the plate...

I recently took a two-day trip up the I-5 North to the Emerald City to catch a Mariners’ game or two with my dad and older brother. Since Portland no longer has any type of baseball thanks to our losing soccer team, a three-hour drive was needed to cure my baseball withdrawals. Funny how America's pastime took a backseat to almost every other country in the world's...

Munenori Kawasaki dances in the dugout during the game because … uh … yeah. Plus, he lies on teammate Casper Wells slowly, awkwardly, and in the most homoerotic way possible

If you thought the end of the Boston Red Sox and Seattle Mariners last night looked familiar, it's because it just about was the same as Thursday night.
